During his student days he was star football and basketball player. He was a carpenter by trade and had never married. His mother died four years ago. Surviving are the father and one brother, Alfred.

Funeral services will be held Thursday afternoon at two o’clock from the Sternborg chapel with Rev. L. A. Mathre of the Estherville Lutheran church in charge. Burial will be made in Oak Hill cemetery. (Vindicator and Republican, Estherville, IA, January 8, 1935)
